Securing today’s online environment goes beyond thinking about the Wi-Fi router at home – and it all starts with a password. Passwords should be different for every account that lives online, is in the cloud, or is attached to something that retains personal or financial information. Think about the last time any of your online account passwords were changed. If they are all the same or a similar variation of the same password, if they are too easy to guess, or if they are forgotten or compromised – change them. According to the Federal Trade Commission, people don’t need to change their passwords as often as they may think; however, it’s good practice make certain the password is as secure as possible.
